Catch The Embers grooving to a reggae beat, swaying to a sea shanty, jumping to a dance anthem or stomping out some seedy blues... The Embers have become one of Tasmania’s most sought after live bands attracting a diverse crowd not often seen in the same room together. Expect high energy music with a heady mix of reggae, blues, folk, funk, dance and rock all wrapped up with a kicking live show. The success of The Embers has seen them selected to play many a festival stage, including Falls Festival, Party in The Paddock, The Basin Concert, Cygnet Folk Festival, Jackeys Marsh Forest Festival, Junction Arts Festival, Swagger Festival and MS Fest. The bands’ appeal has also opened doors for The Embers to support some amazing international and national acts such as The Violent Femmes, Ash Grunwald, The Beautiful Girls, Bomba, The Red Eyes, Lior, Faker, True Live, The Whitlams and The Custom kings. In 2015 The Embers realised a long term dream and recorded a full-length album 'Bright' with Nicky Bomba as producer (Bomba, John Butler Trio, Bustamento; and Melbourne Ska Orchestra) and sound engineer Robin Mai (John Butler Trio, Augie March; and The Cruel Sea). The Embers released and toured their debut album Bright nationally introducing themselves to new friends and audiences in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
